Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) officials announced today that due to the low level of COVID-19 transmission in Montana at this time, updates to the COVID-19 cases and vaccine dashboards will move to a weekly reporting cadence effective Friday, May 6.
Nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, with life inching onward and widespread fatigue amongst Americans, the virus continues to act behind the scenes and spread.
With the swell of a new variant named after the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet, COVID-19 has once again taken center stage at the end of 2021. Last week, the Big Sky Relief Fund doubled the community’s weekly test supply from 500 to 1,000 because of increased need.
Big Sky Relief Partners announce the return of community-wide testing for Big Sky residents and the workforce. The effort, in combination with ongoing vaccine incentives, is designed to keep the community healthy and resilient as businesses gear up for the winter season.
American’s lives have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic for nearly two years now. The World Health Organization issued a global health emergency on Jan. 31, 2020, and the United States declared a public health emergency a few weeks later.
The board members and employees of the Resort Tax (BSRAD) sat down for their monthly meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 13, to discuss updates. Topics at the meeting included Big Sky Medical Center’s (BSMC) emergency funding request, winter Covid testing for the community, and a variety of small subjects.
